I have worked in childcare for the last 15 years. Six years as a practitioner in nurseries and pre schools and four years as a deputy manager. I wanted to challenge myself and do something a little bit different but still in childcare and decided to train to be an assessor which I have been now for the last five years. I am passionate about early years and love seeing new practitioners blossom into educators and work their way up the career ladder in their settings.

I started my career by chance when i got offered to work at a nursery, as support staff for holiday club and it changed my life. I worked my way through level 2, and 3 apprenticeship, and became a room leader, I was supporting apprentices at the nursery as their mentor and I had a great assessor myself who influenced me to want to become an assessor. I continued developing myself as a nursery practitioner for 10 years before I took the step to complete my assessors qualification. I have been assessing now for 6 years and I can’t think of anything better. I love going to visit settings and seeing my learners, from seeing them progress through their careers and develop to be fantastic practitioners. Being an assessor is so rewarding.
